Look, we know that soccer probably doesn’t top your list for the most important sport to stay current with, but we’ve played it since we were literally three-years-old, so anytime something big happens in the sport, we tend to pay attention.
One of those many big events happens to be the drawings for the Round of 16 in the Champions League, which matches-up the best club team’s in the world against each other as they vie for the ultimate in club soccer.
Whether or not you actually pay attention to soccer, we’re guessing you’ll recognize some of these names and faces, so strap on your seat belt and get ready, because we should all be ready for some football… of a different form that is!
Real Madrid & Manchester United
All Reds fans trust in Sir Alex Ferguson, and with him continuing to get a little bit older each year, the man whose led United to 19 total titles (FA and Premier and Champions League), would be smart to try and retain one more title run before possibly calling it quits.
The opponent just happens to be one of the most prestigious clubs in the world, featuring one of the best players in the world in Cristiano Ronaldo. Did we mention CR7 used to call Old Trafford home way back when?
Add in the pressure on Los Blancos (The Whites) manager Jose Mourinho—who might be the heir apparent to Ferguson when he ultimately decides to unlace the kicks—and there’s some compelling storylines when the two clubs kick off.
